Possible penalties for a DUI conviction
For a DUI conviction, you could lose your driver’s license, get a jail sentence of up to 3 years, pay substantial fines and other court-ordered consequences. In addition, to an inevitable increase in your auto insurance rates. However, the severity of your penalty depends on the classification of your DUI charge. If you are charged with a first DUI offense, your penalty is significantly lower than the penalty for Second DUI, third DUI, and felony DUI charges. Even so, the severity of the court penalty for all instances of DUI depends on the competence of your defense attorney.
If You’ve Been Charged with Drunk Driving in San Diego, Here are the 3 Vital Things to Take Into Consideration When Looking to Protect Your Future:
1. Avoiding or cushioning the possible consequences of a DUI charge requires one action from you, which is to hire the best DUI attorney in San Diego. We strongly believe and have discovered that the costs (time, emotional, and financial costs) of being convicted of a DUI crime far outweigh the price of having an experienced DUI attorney represent you.
When charged with a DUI in San Diego, you don’t have to be guilty. There are always legal methods to mitigate the consequences or get your charges dropped altogether. Whether it be a technicality in the way the officer handled the stop or a negotiation tactic used in court, a seasoned DUI attorney can help you.
2. You only have 10 days from the date of your arrest to schedule your DMV hearing or your driver’s license will be revoked or suspended for a specific number of days, months or years. If you haven’t done this already, we can handle this for you.
3. You can be given a public defender if you are classified as a low-income earner who is unable to pay for an attorney. However, this should not thrill you because if you want to look serious about your defense, before the judge and the court, you should have an entire law firm’s resources dedicated to your case. We recommend that you hire a private attorney to represent you. Once again, we strongly believe that the costs of being convicted of a DUI far outweigh the price of having an experienced DUI attorney represent you. We always work with our clients to set up payment plans that work for them, and if you are our client, we will do everything we can to get you the best result possible.
